The Morrison House hotel in Old Town, Alexandria, is hosting a story time for dads and daughters at 2 PM.

Tickets are $38 for adults and $28 for kids. Space is limited, so be sure to make a reservation at 703-838-8000 or e-mail email@example.com.
Father’s Day Barbecue Class
Acadiana in DC’s Penn Quarter is hosting a barbecue class and feast for dads from 1 to 3. Chef Brant Tesky will teach students how to grill cowboy steaks, pork ribs, and even caesar salad. He’ll also make grilled corn and mushrooms, a chimichurri sauce, and a grilled-peach melba. While the food is being prepared, dads enjoy unlimited Abita drafts and root beer. Guests will leave with a goodie bag stocked with house-made barbecue sauce, a recipe book, and more. The class ($75 a person) is currently booked, but organizers are taking names for a waiting list. Contact Jillian Zins at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-408-0201 to add yours. There’s a possibility that a second class will be added, so stay tuned!
